Play the snake game in the YouTube Player

There is a clever Easter Egg for YouTube’s player. You can make sure the player has focus, press the left arrow on your Keyboard for about two seconds and you can play Snake even while watching the videos. I’ve tried and fount it is working fine. The main thing you’ve to remember is, the trick only works with YouTube’s new player which is available only for videos that don’t include annotations or ads. Moreover, it is limited to the videos played on YouTube’s site. It will not work for embedded videos.

For your information, YouTube is not the only Google product that lets you play games, Gmail has a Labs feature called “Old Snakey” that adds a Snake game inside Gmail. Therefore, you can start entertaining right now.
